Re: White oak
Bear in mind, you're talking about being a month and a half out from Perry; John's kinda busy right now. We had our State Service Rifle Match in St. Louis the week before last, a match that John and company have usually attended in the past. They didn't make it this time, and it's likely that a heavy workload is why. You're dealing with a guy who is himself a competitive shooter, and caters primarily to the competitive shooting market. Send him work in November or December, and don't be surprised if it shows up done in very short order. Send him work three or four months before the Nationals, and you're likely to get caught up in backlog.
